Dear LizR, There is an interdependency that should not be ignored between the objects that express the quantities and relations that are represented by the logic and arithmetic. A universe that does not contain any persistent entities would not be capable of expressing numbers or statements. See what I mean? By Necessary Possibility I am denoting the underlying (ontological) potential for objects to interact and perform actions and for representations to "be about" those objects, existence itself is featureless and without any particular property. It is purely "isness".
